I have a  GPS Log (.gpx) file recording the activities of a car. I have added the file to ArcGIS Portal, the file is shown as line on the map. But are there any ways on Portal to calculate the traveling time, speed, etc of the car?

If your data have been projected into a #projected coordinate system‌ you should have no problem doing the math.

All #gpx files I've worked with include a timestamp for each time the receiver picked up the #gnss signal, typically 1/second. Since you know the location at a point in time, and you know the distance traveled, to solve for speed you divide the distance (miles or km) by the time (hours). 

If you need specific help with the steps, please PM me.
